In addition to the ‘general’ safety risks (see above), the following health risks will also need to be identified and considered, for inclusion in the policy and procedures and management system(s):

  •  Blood
    •  Hepatitis
    •  HIV
    •  Tetanus
  •  Breathing
    •  Asthma and allergic reactions

    •  Lung and other respiratory organ cancers
    •  Mesothelioma and asbestosis

Once the risk assessment process has identified all / any health risks, a health surveillance system of on-going health checks may be required, to detect ill-health effects, at an early stage and prevent them getting worse.
